Vodafone, 3 confirm plans to carry iPad 2 in UK

updated 10:40 am EDT, Wed March 16, 2011

Carriers stay ambiguous on release dates

The UK branches of Vodafone and 3 have both confirmed their intentions to sell the iPad 2. The carriers are mum on exact details, but are likely to carry over existing data plans. 3 charges £20 for 15GB of data a month on a two-year contract, or £15 for 10GB on a month-to-month basis; a contract also knocks down the price of the hardware. Vodafone is charging £10 for 1GB, £15 for 3GB and £25 for 5GB per month.

Both of the carriers are extremely vague on when they will begin sales, however, only promising a launch "in the coming weeks." Apple's official iPad 2 date for the UK remains March 25th. There is increasing worry that the company may have to delay an international launch because of demand in the US. A similar situation occurred with the iPad 1 in 2010, forcing the international audience to wait an extra month.
